DeaH: Didn't Thatcher refuse to even meet with Palin?

Why does anyone go to Coulter for facts?

That story is pretty tough to verify--it's pretty much speculation.

I have a ton of trouble believing that a woman of Margaret Thatcher's stature would see Sarah Palin as someone she'd like to be associated with.

Funny how Coulter tries to tie herself and Palin in with Thatcher after Margaret can no longer call them out for being mindless twats that damage the conservative message.

That's Old English. That language evolved into Middle English and thence into Modern English. It is, by no means, proper at this point and time.

Got-damnit! You can't just throw a closeup of Coulter in the middle of an article. Some people have heart conditions.

If she spoke proper English, wouldn't that make her an "elitist" and alienate her fan base?
